Reviews for Wildlife Haven

Rating: 5 stars  

Jane at Wildlife Haven has been there for me more times than I can count. My family and I are some of the fortunate people that seem to have animals in distress come to our place with some regularity. Fortunate for the animals because we care, and they will be safe. Fortunate for us because we have Jane and Wildlife Haven in our neighborhood. Jane has always helped with advice from what to do if you disturb a bunnies nest to taking in injured critters and giving them the care they need. I have a great deal of respect for Jane and her staff. The amount of compassion and dedication it takes to nurse wild animals back to health is huge. We are very blessed to have Jane and Widlife Haven in our community.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Wildlife Haven healed the animals and gave them a second chance at life. They would not have received this chance on the edge of a highway. Once they were healed up, they are released back into the wild, hopefully no worse for the wear and a bit wiser.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

No changes. People need to be aware of Wildlife Haven and support it in any way they can. Organizations like this need our donations of time and money just like the big organizations. But, unlike the big organizations, donations help care for injured or displaced wild animals immediately. Money isn't eaten up by big offices and infastructure.

I have been both a volunteer and a client served at Wildlife Haven and higly recommend everyone taking the time to get to know the place and the wonderful work that is done there. As a volunteer, I learned so many things about the behaviors, habitats and needs of the orphaned and injured wildlife that comes there for a second shot at life. As a client, I have called upon their services with creatures as varied as skunks, raccoons, grey squirrels and cormorants. Caring for the wide variety of wildlife that is taken there requires a round-the-clock commitment. Please consider this group when you are looking for a worthwhile cause and a committed group.

I've been blessed to witness the alleviation of suffering and to improve my own knowledge, skills and empathy.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

This is without exception one of the best facilities of it's kind. The only change I would make would be to find a way to increase funding and volunteership so the group can expand its services to the countless animals needing help.
